The Competitive Advantage program launches fall 2018

CA-Logo-lowresA new program specifically designed for historically underrepresented college undergraduates is set to launch early in the next academic year in the fall of 2018.

Born of The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management — a 51-year-old nonprofit dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion in business education and corporate leadership — the Competitive Advantage program will feature an inaugural class of some 200 students.

The program is set to commence its initial workshop in a Midwest hotel (TBD), where students from the four pilot universities will meet for a series of career simulations, networking, job preparation workshops and more.

Indiana University-Bloomington, the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, Washington University in St. Louis and the University of Wisconsin-Madison are the first schools to participate in the program. The program is dedicated to promoting leadership, career readiness and exploration of graduate school among African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans in undergraduate school.
